Oh yes, Consonni. I had Tschopp last year who quit to concentrate on MTB the day after I put a bid in for him.

 Also bad... But I checked before I took him if he would start this season. Otherwise I would have taken a rider who didn't got chosen...

I'm potentially 30 minutes away from hiring my final rider of the season. How exciting.

I guess Lampre (Oliveira) is so happy right now, now Campbell Flakemore announced he's quitting cycling. Another team with a rider down...

OK, 2 riders down :(

Anyway, I should make the 28 at the end of the draft. No excuses, only an aesthetical flop at my sheet. :)

28 riders for Europcar at the end of the drafts for me.

Targeting top 10 at the end of the season. Will be a hard goal, but lets try it ^^

I found 1 more classics guy, it is the mythical Aleksejs Saramotins :doh: he scored moderately well in the cobbled classics in the past few years (read: more than just 5 "props for finishing" points in each race).

Euskaltel's full team roster for 2016 consists of 28 guys


First row: Pibernik, Mas, Craddock, Gaviria, Pires, Drucker, Meersman
Second row: Boaro, Ruffoni, Van der Sande, Laengen, Zilioli, Villella, Gatto
Third row: Demare, Kennaugh, Contador, Bettiol, Saramotins, Rosa, Conti
Fourth row: Kreder, Sbaragli, Walscheid, Thurau, De la Cruz, Zaugg, Ratto

15 different nationalities, with 10 Italians, 3 Spaniards, 2 Germans and 2 Belgians.

My "big names" are Contador and Demare. Demare had a mediocre season this year, but he is still young and should bounce back in 2016. I hope Rosa and Sbaragli can continue their progression, if they do they should also score very well. Other riders I am counting on are Meersman, Drucker and also Gaviria.
Besides those riders, I also picked plenty of talents who already had some promising results and could take another step next year (Bettiol, Villella, Ruffoni, Pibernik, Zilioli, Conti, Kreder and De la Cruz) and riders who are switching teams, which should present them with more scoring opportunities (Craddock, Ratto, Pires, Zaugg and Thurau)

Others:
Laengen rode for Team Joker this year and had some good results in the Norwegian 2.HC races, he will ride for IAM next year. I am not sure what to expect though. He isn't super young anymore (26, 27 at the start of next year) but at least he should ride more .HC and .WT races next year, and he clearly has the potential to score.

Walscheid, my 2nd neo, I believe he is a sprinter but I don't know much more about him. I hope he will get opportunities to score and won't just be part of Degenkolb's sprint train.

Mas scored well in some .HC races he raced this year, for example he scored 63 points in Tour of Turkey and 12 in GP Nobili. I would be really happy just with similar scores next year, because he only cost me $30k :win: but maybe he can do even better.

Saramotins, like I said in the General Discussion thread, I wanted my last rider to be someone with potential to score in classics because I really felt I was lacking in that department. Saramotins finished 13th in Paris-Roubaix this year, hopefully he can do something similar next year :rool:

Van der Sande has been "pretty good" for a while now with lots of top-10s in sprints. He hasn't had a real breakthrough yet, though.

Boaro is one of my personal favorites, he always impresses me with his huge strength and he is so likeable, I wish him all the best next year :toast:

Kennaugh scored well last year but wasn't as good this year. I'm hoping he can score like in 2014 again next season :win: he is a bit of a tool though :doh:

Gatto is also one of my favorites, he is a good punchy sprinter and also good on cobbles, next year he will ride for Tinkoff, with Sagan, just like in the good old Cannondale days. :toast:

Overall, I really like my team, there's a lot of riders I really like, and others I think will be interesting to cheer for. Not sure what I can expect performance-wise, but I'm hoping for a top-10 finish :judge:
